Reggie is 27 and is a 40% three guy. Not a bad pickup for a horrible team.

Svi cannot shoot in the NBA. He is a "P and D" guy -- Practise and D-League guy.

I think Svi will be great down the line. He just looks a step slower than others right now which is fine. He’s a rookie. Still only 21. Reggie isn’t a bad pickup. Hope he sticks around and keeps producing since we also gave up a 2nd for him

Not a bad player when he isn't injured. If he stays healthy not a bad pick up. Desperately need to spread the floor, something I have said since the summer.

I feel the same way about Svi and he could handle the ball as well. Hope Reggie is not a 1 yr rental, cause giving up a pick for a rental is insane.

He's a ok player, but not sure about his consistency on offense. He attempts a lot of 3s and can help spread the floor

Don't like it at all... Svi just need more playing time! This sucks! What are you doing?!

This is a good trade, we need shooters who can contribute now. Svi isn't going to give us anything this season and we are in win now mode. This guy takes and makes a lot of 3's which is exactly what we need.

This trade does not move the needle at all. We are not winning it this year so why give up on a 21 year old and a pick for a 27 year old on the last year of their contract. I don't get it!

If not before the deadline on Thursday. They have 6 picks right now. NO is looking for picks more than players. Lakers players would screw up their tank. Every rebuilding team covets picks. NO is a rebuilding team once AD is gone.

Everyone in the league will twist our moves and news about us in any negative way they can. Not only are we the easiest to hate, our players attract a lot of it, particularly LeBron and Lonzo (because of his dad). I just ignore it. We got Bullock in a smaller move, I think it'll definitely help us. Everyone else? "Haha Lakers swing and miss on AD so they got Reggie Bullock instead."

You know...I would ignore it too but If your future is this young core which best case scenario is 2nr round PO its really ridiculous cause you won't get any justification with another title.. Klay is going to stay, KD stay or NY, Kwahi Clippers, AD Boston or Clippers, Kyrie Boston or NY,....only player I see in Laker uniform is Kemba (or DC), that is it.

I don't say trade for AD now no matter what....but Bradley Beal would be nice....

I’m pretty sure he’s not in the future plans. I looked at my phone notification about this trade and my first thought was who’s Reggie Bullock? My second thought was I bet he’s on an expiring contract and I went back to sleep.

I read about this trade a few minutes ago and my second thought was correct, he’s an expiring contract. This just means that after the season he’s gone so I don’t believe any Lakers’ fan should get attached to him.

my thoughts exactly. This “win now” mentality helps very little this season and when all that the Lakers want are expiring contracts then guys know they’re not in the plans down the line.

yep, which is why they’ve made Randle and Mirotic available for picks. They will most likely shutdown AD if they don’t trade him. This team is smartly going into rebuild mode nice their main guy wants to be traded.

Washington really should look to rebuild because Wall is pretty much out fir next year two after rupturing his Achilles. They should move Beal and try to get Otto Porter off their books. I’d rather see Beal in LA than Lebron/AD and a whole bunch of vet minimum guys

Laughing stock of the NBA. Excellent work Magic. Giving up a 21 year old shooter and a pick for an expiring contract. Your President of Basketball Operations career is starting to look your pathetic attempt at coaching. To me, this was a last ditch effort to do something to save face attempting to look productive after his ridiculous attempt at acquiring AD that made us look like desperate idiots and destroyed our moral. This story gets more pathetic by the minute.

From what I understand Magic isn’t that great of a manager. I heard that the LebrOn deal was already in the works before Magic got the job and he just finished it. You are right about Magic’s coaching abilities, they were horrible! Now it looks like the only thing he knows about management is collecting expiring contracts and holding his breath that another star will want to play with the Lakes.just think, the Lakes had a chance to get Jerry West back but decided to go with Magic. I heard that he thinks his presence along will sway stars to the team but I think a lot of these younger players don’t care about him, aren’t swayed by him.

This isn't the same dynasty that he remembers. Stars do not want to play here anymore. The only reason we got LeBron was because he offered him a boat load of cash.

FYI the Heat have won an average of 40 games each season since their big 3 broke up. Even this year they are over .500. So the chance of them falling down to very bottom lottery team isn’t all that great.

Yeah, but lottery odds change this season, more of a chance teams 4-14 can move up lottery night.

Know it's not real, but did Tankathon and teams at 5-9 moved up to #1 more than I've seen in last few years.

So if the Heat finish 10th worst in whatever year that pick is, Clippers will have a 3% chance lol, heck as of this moment we have a 1% chance this year to get the #1 pick. Heat already know they don't have that pick, they have no reason to rebuild that year since they don't get their pick. You think Pat Riley is going to start a massive rebuild the same year that they don't even have their own 1st round pick?

Also here some info about Reggie Bullock and why our FO may have made this trade.

    18 / 19 - Reggie is tied for 12th in league at 2.6 (3pm per game) and of those 12 players he is ranked 4th in percentage at .388

    17 / 18 - Reggie finished last year 2nd in the NBA in 3pt % at .445 while making 2 per game.

He is for a sure a top 10 3pt in this league when given the mins to do so.

Now the 2nd major part is this is his last year of his deal. But we have his full bird rights and his cap hold is only 4.75 mil. So as far as our books are concerned he is only a 4.75mil hit to our cap next summer if we work out some other long term deal.

****Did anyone just see what was given up for the players below that are similar to Bullock:

    Rodeny Hood - Nik Stauska / Wade Badlwin / (2) future 2nd round picks

    Kyle Korver - Alec Burks / (2) future 2nd round picks

    Justin Holiday - Marshon Brooks / Wayne Selden / (2) future 2nd round picks

This is the definition of people looking for any reason to be mad at our FO right now because of the whole AD situation.

This was a great trade for us, we gave up a guy who was never part of our rotation and never was going to be.

But Bullock has only played 253 games his whole career. If he stays healthy and maintains his shooting I agree but that's a pretty big if.

Sure we can't guarantee any player can keep up that kind of shooting. Look at Klay this year. So it for sure could happen to anyone at any time. However we only gave up a player that has played 39 games in his career in which only 4 of those 39 games he even played over 20 mins. Also as good as a shooter it seems like he will be, he is only giving us 31.8% right now. I think it was a solid trade, many Laker fans are looking for any reason to bash our FO right now because of the AD situation.

A Lot of Laker fans expect every draft pick to turn into a all star. I remember reading posts that Clarkson was going to be an all star lol.

It was a great trade for us? What's your definition of great? I'm not looking for any reason to be mad at the FO but I do believe they are fools to give up dang near half your roster for one player. I know you think differently which is why you'll be more positive about the FO.

I don't think the Bullock trade does anything for this team except for adding a temporary shooter. The Lakers wanted to make sure he was on an expiring contract because they want to hoard their cap space. All this means is that they'll be happy with him leaving after the season or if they want to keep him they'll try to sign him to a one year deal that has a good amount of money or they'll sign him to a two year deal with a team option so they can turn it into a one year deal. This has been the Lakers, strategy for about 5-6 years now: keep all the cap space they can so they can swing for the fences and strike out in free agency, sacrifice young guys for vets so they can win-now. I guess we get to see who the Lakers strike out on this offseason and then watch them toss around large one-year deals to fill out the roster and the beauty of it? We get to see another different roster at the beginning of the season like we have the last four or five years I believe it has been.

That Heat pick is in 2021, that's two seasons for them to possibly become worse. However, the Clippers will probably move it before then.

You pretty much summed up his strategy which is just like Mitch's strategy. Offer one year contracts to keep cap space, swing for the fences in free agency, strike out, fill the roster with one year contracts and restart the process again.

FYI, you need to accept that Jerry West has pulled off a Rabbit out of the hat. Miami pick has no protections plus what KK mentioned above about the new draft lottery system.

Rebuilding *cough* tanking *cough* teams need picks and Clippers have 6. They don’t want the entire laker roster to come and ball out in New Orleans and mess up the tank in the process.

He gone....to Clippers. Lol.

FWIW, they need to conduct an investigation and find out which azzho was leaking information to the media regarding the players involved in the potential trade. This is really messed up. This has virtually destroyed the spirit of this team. Even if they stay past the deadline, the young players are never going to be the same again.

These things are never leaked out, the details come out only once the trade goes down. You always factor in the possibility of the trade not going down and don’t release such sensitive information. You never hear names in the other trades around the league prior to the trade going down. Who knew about the Harris trade to Philly? It came down like lightening bolt once it went down successfully. It took everyone by surprise.

Magic has behaved like a FKN novice at the negotiating table and for keeping things in house. He is worse than my 7 yr old nephew at keeping secrets.

We get to see another different roster at the beginning of the season like we have the last four or five years I believe it has been.

Okay in the last 4-5 years what all star has wanted to come play with us? The NBA now days operates to ways, at least I think so when it comes to signing an all-star in Free Agency:

  1. A top level FA doesn't want to go to a team by themselves, they want a team with at least one other all-star to give themselves a chance top win. We have not had an all star on our team since Kobe was good.

  2. A bottom tier All Star, they will come here alone and get paid, but there is a good chance you have to over pay them. So which bottom tier all stars wanted to come here and get paid and we just turned our head on them?

To me the only potential bad trade we made was when let Russel go. But if we sign another all-star this summer, then I don't see it as bad.

I view Julius situation different then most maybe. Julius told us he wanted out, we didn't kick him out. Pelicans can't even get a pick for him right now. He is a good player, but he is not that player the NBA style right now. Other wise his market would of been higher then it was last summer. I think Julius is viewed different by most fans, then actual NBA teams, you know the professionals at their doing their job all over the league.

You mention sacrifice vets? When did we do this? I mean I guess we sacrifice youngs in Russell and Julius for a vet named LeBron? Can you name another example in which we sacrificed youngs for a vet?

You are 100% correct about hoarding space, we sure have been doing that, I forgot what player did we miss out on because we were hoarding space? I don't remember one say I want to come to lakers and we instead hoarded cap space?

Actually think Pels leak info, with no intention of trading him to Lakers.

Probably had a good laugh showing how desperate Lakers are.

On the contrary, I feel it was Magic’s camp leaking the info to appease the King. They were sending a message that they were trying whatever they could in their power to land AD. They don’t want the King to blame them later on for not trying. lol.

The issue isn't whether he can play. He looks to be a pretty good role player who fills a need. My concern is it may be LA's usual business of getting a guy for one year and send him on his way. I know it's been said what his cap hold is but what does that matter when LA will focus on the big names while guys like Bullock or whoever else sign up with other teams to join a team who needs them. LA treats these types of players like after thoughts.

The trick with him and his cap hold is we can still afford a max player this summer with his 4.75 cap hold. However we trade for AD by tomorrow he will for sure be gone this summer, because his 4.75 will mean a bunch more if we already have AD salary and potential Solomon salary to deal with.

Magic and Pelinka handled this TRADE business poorly. They don't have enough information on the availability of AD and the position of the Pelicans on this trade, and they start attacking giving offers in high heavens of all their talented assets just to please one player-LBJ. This deal is entirely insane and only a sucker management e.g. Magic and Pelinka took the bait ignoring common sense. So much damage has happened to Lakers as a result of this very insensible business decision. Just hoping that these DYNAMIC DUO learned their lesson.
